Our summer learning plan builds upon their skills, interests and abilities while enriching their lives with new knowledge and opportunities to explore, create and grow.


Classroom and Environment

Summer is a time for relaxing, having fun and enjoying time with friends while continuing to build upon the skills and knowledge learned throughout the school year.
